are reaccoureac reacting after steve jobs announces he will resign immediately. he underwent a liver transplant two years ago and had been on medical leave from the company he cope founded since january. in a letter to apple's board jobs wrote in part i've always said if there ever came a day when i could no longer meet my duties and expectations as ceo i'd be the first to let you know. unfortunately, jobs writes, that day has come. joining me now by phone is john fort, at apple headquarters. it really reaches beyond the business world, this guy has touched our lives in so many ways. first of all, why the announcement now? is this purely a health decision? >> reporter: apple has not given us the details on exactly what led up to this. they're kind of telling us the minimum of what we would need to know, but, yes, the subtext behind this has always been that the only thing that would take steve jobs out of this role that he cared so much about as ceo of apple is his health issues got to the point where he didn't feel that he was able to fulfill the ceo duties going forward. so we have to take it

, political columnist, steve. political reporter from the washington post. and matt lewis, con strib outer for the daily call. first question, are republicans ultimate promise breakers. is they explicitly reneging on entitlement programs for elderly americans. check out what eric can'tor told the wall street journal. >> get the fiscal house in order. come to grips that promises have been made that frankly won't be kept for many. promises are not going to be kept. generations of americans have banked on the fact that medicare and social security will get them through retirement. they will not admit they will default on that promise. >> that quote right there gets two big issues i think and one is it gets to problem republicans were having before the whole debt ceiling issue came to a head. that's when they were proposing the paul ryan overhaul of medicare that turned into a voucher program. you saw how poisonous and unpopular that was. it cost them a special election that they should have won. if that's the language they put forward is causes them problems. but the more immediate issue is h

defense? time for the "hardball" strategists. a big night for republicans. steve mcmahon playing defense. i'm afraid to say. take it away. batting practice for you. make the case. easiest night of your life. why the president should not get re-elected for a second term? >> simply, you ask the american people, is the country heading in the right direction, and depending on what poll you look at, your latest poll was about 67% say, no. i've seen it as high as 75%. >> make an argument. what's your case? >> four things. jobs, the economy, spending, debt. every one of those indicators people are unhappy with the direction this president has taken the country. if that's what the question of the 2012 cycle is about, barack obama is in real tough shape. >> what's the biggest issue going for you? >> the economy. clearly. >> narrow it down. >> jobs specifically. the economy more broadly. look at economic indicators, economic confidence, in gallup, latest numbers, the lowest of the obama presidency. people don't think the economy is heading in the right direction. >> okay, you made your point. stev

steve king attended the pawlenty rally but then has high praise for another can data. >> the press overlooked the strength of ron paul's campaign. he's been campaigning in iowa more than four years. he has a solid organization. he'll place well. that's the measure the rest of the candidates are competing dpens. >> talks about ron paul. gunk he could be a serious contender? >> ron paul has a history of doing well in straw polls and basically being dismissed nonetheless. he has a loyal, active hard-core of supporters. he hasn't succeeded in his last campaign or this one in broadening that to a wider share of the electorate. if he wins the straw poll, the ames straw poll is different from any other and people have to contend with him. if he comes in third or even worse, there is probably going to be a tendency to continue to write him off as somebody who has a very narrow but intense base of support. >> i want to get to her man c man cain. >> i don't believe i need to win the straw poll but i believe i need to finish in the top three. >> how risky is it to set the bar high? in general

following last week's worst selloff in two years. cnbc's steve liesman joins me live. good morning. is this about what you expected? >> yeah, it's in line. we were down a little bit more in the 250, 260 range. came back a little bit. but we had a poor open and close in asia, europe did not do well. the one asset that's doing well is the asset that was downgraded, u.s. sovereign debt, ten-year notes were right -- we're doing pretty well. that was the opposite of what you might think. but at the end of the day what you have is a flight to safety. the ricochets keep coming. s&p also downgraded some other financial institutions that they say are reliant upon the u.s. sovereign debt. >> they're not backing off on -- they said they would do it again, but treasury secretary tim gooet near over on cnbc, he is absolutely furious with standard & poor's. let me splay a clip of what he had to say. >> i think s&p's shown really terrible judgment. they handled themselves very poorly and showed a stunning lack of knowledge about u.s. fiscal math. i think they drew exactly the wrong conclusion fro
